Sakaja faults Kidero's admin for stifling business growth in the city

10 October 2016, 10:10 George Vodongo

Nairobi - Nairobi Governorship Jubilee Aspirant Johnson Sakaja, has castigated the Nairobi County Government for being an impediment to the growth of businesses in the city.

Speaking in Soweto area of Kayole, Sakaja said that the work of the county government was to encourage and facilitate business as opposed to harassing and stifling traders.

During the meet-the-people tour, Sakaja vowed to stand by small traders who are facing eviction and harassment promising to ensure that they would not be relocated unless alternative space is allocated to them.

The traders are supposed to vacate the area by Monday to create room for a planned road expansion but the county government is yet to tell them where they are moving to.

Sakaja, the traders and other Kayole residents discussed other challenges such a garbage collection, high crime rate, grabbing of public areas including road reserves as well as lack of opportunities, especially for young people.

The Kayole residents said that the grabbing was being done by people with connections at both the National and County Government.

They also complained that access to medical services was expensive at health facilities that were being run by the Nairobi County Government.

Sakaja said that it was unacceptable that public land and facilities were being grabbed as the county government watched.

He added that the role of the county government is to ensure that all residents in the city get the necessary services they need because they have paid for them.
